Shelly Sterling Demanded Title of “Clippers #1 Fan” in $2 Billion Deal
The Sterlings are an odd bunch.
You are getting $2 Billion but you are negotiating things like this.
TMZ Sports has obtained the $2 billion contract between Shelly Sterling and Steve Ballmer — and there was one interesting clause … Shelly demanded an official lifetime title before she would agree to sell the team … “Clippers’ Number 1 Fan.”
It’s there in plain black and white — besides agreeing to give Shelly 12 tickets for life, “Buyer shall also give Shelly Sterling the title of “Owner Emeritus” and “Clippers’ Number 1 Fan,” which titles she shall retain for the duration of her lifetime.”
